Morris was one of Beyonce's backup dancers on The Beyoncé Experience world tour and, following that, worked again with Beyonce on a mini Single Ladies promotional tour that included 2008 performances on the American Music Awards, Saturday Night Live, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Today Show, and MTV's Total Request Live Finale. She also danced backup for Beyonce and Tina Turner at the 50th Grammy Awards in 2008. Morris was taking acting classes and actively pursuing an acting career when she was asked by Woodlee to teach the choreography for Beyoncé's "Single Ladies" dance to the Glee actors. At the same time, the show was looking for a third cheerleader, and Morris ended up landing the role of Brittany. Initially a background character who hardly ever spoke, the role grew as writers discovered Morris had a gift for delivering one liners.
Jarrett Wieselman of the New York Post opined that Morris has "emerged as one of the funniest second bananas on TV right now" and the LA Times wrote of having a "...comedy crush on Morris, who plays the galactically dim Glee Club cheerleader Brittany". Due to the positive response of her character in Glee in the second season of the series she will be promoted to a series regular along with fellow cast member Naya Rivera. Read more on Last.fm.
